Blue Legacy

blue_legacy
Blue Legacy is an initiative started in 2008 by Alexandra Cousteau to engage individuals around the world through telling the story of our water planet. Blue Legacy works to:

— help shape society’s dialogue to include water as one of the defining issues of our century;

— inspire people to take action on critical water issues in meaningful ways. 

EXPEDITION: BLUE PLANET is the first major initiative of Blue Legacy to build and engage audiences around the world. It is a global exploration, traveling across five continents to more than eight locations chronicling the interconnectivity of global water issues to document how they impact lives. As of July 2009, EXPEDITION: BLUE PLANET has covered stories in India, Botswana, the West Bank, Israel, Jordan, the Mississippi River, the Gulf of Mexico, the Anacostia River in Washington, D.C., and Cambodia.
